Chaotic but productive
News Engagement Specialist- Project manager (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAJanuary 14, 2014
There is no typical day at CIR. Part of the challenge of product development and management is just that- constantly revising and honing content until it's ready for release.

I worked with a great fellowship/
Office Director (Former Employee), Palos Park, ILAugust 23, 2013
This not for profit truly worked hard for the community. When I began the budget was 600,00.00 when I resigned that year's budget was 1.4 million. There was 27 core employees and 12 preschool staff. Small in numbers but great in accomplishment. The thing I took from this job of 11 years is pride and ability to think on my feet.

Started out meeting consumers needs
Director (Former Employee), Houston, TXMay 27, 2013
Pros: working with consumers and families

Initially it started with productivity. Later on it became a warehouse facility that stored goods. Prior to management changes their primary focus was on consumer driven needs. Over the years they developed into meeting the states requirements on paper. Clients needs were only being met on paper. The implementation of programs designed to meet their – more... Vocational and Day Habilitation needs.Seeing consumers advance and move forward inspite of the changes. – less

The Center was a great place to work. I enjoyed the people we served with intellectual disabilities.
Service/ Program Coordinator /Supervisor (Former Employee), Houston, TXOctober 30, 2012
A typical day at work starts off busy you never could remain in your office to finish or begin working due to so much going on. You have to be a person that enjoys working with persons with special mental disabilities. I enjoyed every bit of my job the good and the bad. I've learned to be thankful for what I have in life and my abilities to do for myself, – more... because there are people out there that are worst off. You have to have a heart and passion to work in that type of work atmosphere. That is one thing I could say was that I enjoyed helping others and being involved with the clients, family, and providers. It's a place where you can't bring your personal issues to the work place because you have enough to deal with when you are there. There are some friendly co-workers there that are willing to help you, but you must be a self starter and be able to muilti-task. It took time for me to adapt to all the changes in the company because I got use to a certain way, and after doing it for 2 years things just changed out of the blue. The hardest part is losing your job knowing that you loved what you were born to do which is helping others in need of your assistance. I really and truly enjoyed being there for the clients. I will miss them! – less

Amazing organization w great views and energy!
Street Team Member (Current Employee), Denver, COOctober 16, 2012
Pros: job references, on the job training, possible internship opportunities
Cons: long hours during denver pride fest planning as well as during the weekend of the event.
I love volunteering for this organization for it has all of the same values, views, and goals for the community that i have. I have learned how to be a better manager and leader. A typical day, during planning for Denver Pride Fest, was full of planning meetings, park walks for where the event is going to be held, job and responsibilties overviews, – more... fundraising brainstorming, and many, many volunteer hours. The management is all very honest, straight forward, supportive, and encouraging and all try to help train and teach all they can to help individuals involved in the organization promote within as well as learn new skills to get better jobs/positions outside of the organization. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interactions w all of the community members, building and strengthening the community!! – less

Fun and Fulfilling
Volunteer (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAOctober 3, 2012
Pros: friendly environment, hard work
Cons: working last minute
This was a great place to volunteer for. There is never a day that goes by where you aren't productive. You are either working with the children in the Youth Center or helping rebuild the library for the The Center's Youth Program. I've learned how to communicate with people of all ages and how to work together in group, which could be difficult at – more... times, but was always worked out. The people at The Center are wonderful to work for. They are understanding, friendly and know how to keep and eye on everything at the same time. – less
